Chapter 54

Owen was surprised when Ianto entered his office, but he had grown to like the young man, and waved him to a nearby chair.

With a scathing look, Ianto carefully removed the folders and looked around the messy office with a frown.

"Hey, I have a system here, mate!" Owen sniped as he snatched the files and threw them onto a nearby stack that proceeded to collapse onto the floor.

"Yes Owen. Impressive," Ianto droned with an eye roll.

"Well? Can't all be Mr. Mom now, can we?" Owen sniffed. "Jack's office at home is just plain scary!"

"Bless. Something actually scares you? The mighty Doctor Harper?" Ianto clasped his hands to his bosom and swooned.

"Gray will be Jack's best man and I want you to be mine." Ianto rolled his eyes.

"Shit! What about your Idris bloke?" Owen grinned.

"No. He was for Lisa, and I want good luck this time. You have only ever helped me and I want you by our sides," Ianto declared.

"Oh yeah, and Tosh is my maid of honour as well. You don't mind, do you? Sitting with her and dancing with her for the first couples dance?" Ianto asked with wide eyes.
